[Mining] A question about mining

Discussion in 'UO Craftsman' started by old man mcbeggin, Sep 26, 2009.

  1. I tried to set my pickaxe to mine ore and gems, It gave me a message I have not learned to mine gems. I thaught when you hit GM it would let you mine them automaticaly? Please explain!

    There are two different kind of gems ...
    - the rare ones, that got introduced with ML: those can be mined up by any gm miner (but with a low chance)
    - the standard/old ones: those can be mined up after reading a mining-for-gems book which can be bought at Ter-Mur
